Explore new approaches and crochet techniques each week. Crochet offers an amazing array of adaptations to shape solid forms. Immerse yourself in its adaptability while building a three-dimensional abstract object. Personal work is encouraged. Prerequisite: Must know single crochet. Limit 8 students

Please bring to class:

  • Assorted crochet hooks: anything you own (from very small to very large) but nothing too nice, since the wire is harsh. Instructor prefers metal, but plastic is economical and are available in packages containing several sizes.
  • Tapestry needle
  • Assorted materials that inspire you: wool, fabric strips, jute, string, ribbons, embroidery floss, grass, plastic, old sweaters, organic matter, monofilament, etc.
  • Scissors
  • Wire cutters and pliers (only if you own them already; instructor will provide one of each for everyone to share)
